Yes - we need to keep in mind that it is only a trial, and that it could (and probably will) be different after the trial period is over.  To that end, i
would suggest that you don't integrate the code until after the trial period finishes.  Now that we have a legal means of export, we can put the files
there at crosswire, but if it is all cancelled at the end of the 120 days, then you've wasted effort by integrating now.
